Our Bergère, available only in limited numbers, starts at $3,300 + cost of fabrics and finishing details. Thousands of fabrics to choose from with choice of inserts.
The Bergère, also known as the shepherdess chair, is an iconic design that originated in Paris during the French Régence (1715–23) and reached its most ornate height during Rococo period when King Louis XV reigned. It is designed to expose its wood curved frame, some of which with carved details. Ideal for lounging in comfort with its deeper, wider, tailored seat and padded elbowrests.
In the spirit of its Maximalist roots, we turned this classic on its head with our over-the-top combination of modern fabrics.
The seat and back cushions are covered in a durable 100% cotton satin, milled in the UK. Striking leopard-spotted elephants takes centre stage, inspired by Jules Verne's adventure stories. Leaping gazelles, birds of paradise and curious foliage also feature in this illustrated African fantasy by a British designer. Available in other colourways and also as wallpaper.
A diamond jacquard in technicolour completes the rest of the Bergère and topped with contrast piping.
